Why are you even asking this? If you did create some kind of loop, did you really think the admin wouldn't notice something funky in the mail queue? –  Bart Silverstrim Oct 17 '10 at 15:33

That depends entirely on the mailing list software. Mailman puts in a header to detect loops, but if the other mailing list is not Mailman, it may strip it off and prevent it from working.
